Mary Shelley has given Victor Frankenstein an early life which

was closely connected with nature through study, discoveries and urge
to the unknowns. Through out the story, it was the surroundings from
early life that impacted Victor on his decisions the most, as well as
everyone else.

Part 3: Re-write all four questions included on the Major Essay #1

Assignment Sheet and provide, as best you can at this point, the
answers you are planning for your essay.

Question #1: Victor Frankenstein, a character from Mary

Shelleys novel, who break the rule of nature, built a living

monster from the death. As she describes him no human being
could have passed a happier childhood than myself, he grew up
with loving family, loyal friends and a indescribable path to the
wild and unknown world. He changed his life attitude or even his
personality in the process. While he was obesely trying to learn,
he says I confess that neither the structure of languages, nor
the code of governments, nor the poetics of various states,
possessed attractions for me. In other words, nothing besides
the nature interests him, even though it is not how he used to

Question #2: The thread is important to notice to comprehend

the novel, because it was the changes in Victor Frankensteins
thoughts, which leaded to the tragedy in the end. As Victor says
in the novel So much has been done, exclaimed the soul of
Frankenstein, -- more, far more, will I achieve: trending in the
steps already marked, I will pioneer a new way, explore unknown
powers, and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of
creation. The decision of creating something new was his.

Question #3: In the first version, Victor was the one who made

all the tragedy happened, he did it for his own greedy of

knowledge and his will of creations. However, the 1831 revision
gave Victor a purpose to be who he is, and shaped him as one of
the victims.

Question #4: I think it would lead thoughts on how early life

shapes people. We all know that the childhood was the most
important time of learning about life, but is there any rules we
as human should follow due to the balance of the nature? It
would be great to find out.
